    Bob Graham San Francisco Chronicle

    The movie lacks the one thing that the classic "Three Musketeers" story can't do without: panache. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    If this is Dumas, there's a "b" in the middle and an extra "s" at the end. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    What a stupefying thing it is. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    The Musketeer is the worst Hollywood period film in -- it seems like ages since "American Outlaws." show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    I cannot in strict accuracy recommend this film. It's such a jumble of action and motivation, ill-defined characters and action howlers. show more

    Charles Savage Miami Herald

    Its failure to be extraordinary is thus all the more cutting, and its redundancy all the more unforgivable. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    A grotesque slumgullion of kung fu, studio schlock and pseudo-Dumas swashbuckling that leaves you longing for Doug Fairbanks --or even Don Ameche and The Ritz Brothers. show more

    Jay Carr Boston Globe

    The images are pretty, and Gene Quintano's screenplay gets everybody from point A to point B, though with no discernible knack for wit or subtlety. show more

    Jonathan Foreman New York Post

    An example of lazy, dumb and couldn't-care-less hack movie making. show more

    Cody Clark Mr. Showbiz

    Quite handsomely produced, and there's a definite swashbuckling verve to it. Most of the characters have been contemporized, but the actors are engaging. show more
